An overrated "emo" band that only got famous because they hail from the NORTH SHORE (an area of chicago suburbs that is predominantly occupied by bitchy white rich snobs. Trust me, I live there - or you could just watch Mean Girls).

NORTH SHORE = MONEY = RECORD DEAL. Go figure.
Fall Out Boy (lyrics from "Growing Up"): Glenview never meant a thing to me
She never meant a thing to me
Except for putting idealists in a body bag

An American rock band formed in 2001. After going on hiatus for a few years from 2010 - 2012, they returned with a massive breakthrough in their new album titled Save Rock and Roll. Although the band has received mixed reviews on this album, the majority seem to adore the album (and the others miss the 'old' Fall Out Boy)

For some reason, unintelligent beings seem to think of the fans of this outstanding band to be 'emo' which is absolutely ridiculous, considering they are first and foremost now a punk rock/pop rock band who produce amazing, real music that one can actually listen to without shaving their ears off. Other bands that are similar include Green Day and Panic! At the Disco. Although, in utter honesty, there is not a band as good in their genre as Fall Out Boy.

Their talented members are Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz (Peter Wentz), Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley.
"I can't stop listening to the new Fall Out Boy album! It's so good!"

A band that may have once had talent (doubtful), but was "ruined" by MTV.
More akin to Jonas Brothers than a punk band.
Can burn in hell for all I care.
Fan: "Did you see Fall Out Boy play at New Years Rockin' Eve with Taylor Swift?"
Me: "No, given the choice I would rather castrate myself."

A band that plays punk-rock music. They are often called fags because their bassist and lyricist , Pete Wentz, wears guyliner. Many people, mostly girls ages 14-18, believe that Pete Wentz is the hottest thing to hit the planet since pet rocks, although, without makeup, he is not particularly attractive. Their vocalist, composer, and backup singer is Patrick Stump, their guitarist is Joe Trohman, and their drummer is Andy Hurley. Thier first hit was Sugar, We're Going Down, shortly followed by Dance, Dance, and, most recently, Thnks Fr Th Mmrs. They are often called emo, which is partly true, depending on your definition of emo, because some of Fall Out Boy's songs contain suicidal themes and screamo. This band, for some reason that I cannot comprehend, inspires both extreme hatred and extreme idolization in great multitudes of people, who never actually pay attention to a band's music, only about their friends saying they are gay or talking about how hot Pete Wentz is. They forget to actually listen, or have their own opinion. Mine, however, is that Fall Out Boy is a good band. I like their music, and I believe that they have never changed their values to satisfy people they don't care about, is a huge acomplishment for anyone, celebrity or not.
Dude 1:"Wow, fall out boy sucks. Dance, dance is probably the worst song I've ever heard.

Girl 1: "I like it."

Dude 1: "Whatever"

A living hell for the ears.
Fall Out Boy reminds me of a thousand chalkboards being scratched at once in to a megaphone.
